I'm interested in moving to Cary area, and want a home on a nice .25 - .50 acre lot off Kildare Farm Road or Holly Springs Rd. Looking at 4 bedrooms, wooded lot (some trees to screen from neighbors... not like deep woods or anything.) I'd also love a basement. My brother is having a home built in Oaks at Meadowridge, but that development is too pricey for me. I've heard Lochmere Highlands may be just right? Thoughts? Suggestions for other nearby neighborhoods? We have 2 young children too, so schools are important. Thanks. Looking in low-mid 400K.

Lochmere is nice but I have heard (but not confirmed) the HOA is high.

In Holly Springs, check out Sunset Ridge, Park at West Lake or Wescott. They are all in your price range.

Lochmere Highlands might mostly be below your desired price point, but if it works...
Worth considering...Wynston Ridge, Lochmere, Summerwinds, Birkhaven, Wimbledon, Macgregor Downs

Default more neighborhoods

Try Cotswold on Kildaire Farm Rd. Great prices for the square footage and not as high or old as Lochmere homes. Most in Cotswold were built just 5-9 or 10 years ago.

Default Lochmere

Basement might be tough at your price point, but a nice house is certainly with in reach.
BTW, Meadowridge is Toll Bros. For the price he will pay, he could do better for his money.

I have found that most houses here with basements have a funky yard that I wouldn't want.

I have heard from many a Lochmere resident that the while the HOA is reasonable, it is EXTRA to join the pool & that is expensive. If you have kids you're probably gonna want to join the pool. The Park at West Lake has an awesome pool & kid area & the HOA includes the pool for only like $300 a year.
